The Great Plant Hunt ideas

If not a little delayed, here are a few ideas and resource links for the Great Plant Hunt. First idea, create artistic collages of plant/ flowers from fabrics and materials and take photos as the end result.
Create flower arrangements from cut flowers, or pick daisy's and dandelions.
Create collages of flowers from observation.
Jasper's Beanstalk Visual aids for story telling and ordering. Download from TES, you will need to register but it's free (make sure you save your password and username)

Create flowers by threading silk flowers onto pipe cleaners with yellow pom-poms. For larger pom-poms you can thread the pipe cleaner through smaller ones need pipe cleaner folding it over, adult to do this part. You can buy bags of of silk flower petals or purchase cheap lei's from party shops and cut the string off. Make leaves out of funky foam and poke a hole in using a biro. In this example I have created little cards for children to copy patterns, early reading and ordering. But I would not suggest that are used at all times as it may inhibit creativity.

I will be adding a few resources onto all join in printables, but am having a few uploading issues, if you can't wait email me at and I'll email them. There are also a few ideas on the spring themed page.
